Nasreddin was sitting by a window in his house one day in

the middle of winter, when he heard women outside crying.

He put his head out of the window, and saw a lot of people

coming towards his house. They were carrying a dead man,

and the women were crying, 'Oh, why are you leaving us

to go to a place without light and without a fire and without

food? It will be dark there, and you will be cold and hungry.

Nobody will look after you, nobody will be kind to you, and

nobody will love you there!'

'My God!' said Nasreddin to his wife. 'They are talking

about our house. They are bringing the dead man here! Quick,

lock the door! Don't let him in!'

What were they saying ?
